Comments:

Is the (un-needed) xServer stuff still included in this AMI?

Posted by Marc on March 03, 2009 at 03:19 PM PST #

Marc, Yes this does include the default packages, since we are not changing contents from the vanilla OpenSolaris 2008.11 outside of EC2 even though we have some exceptions. You are welcome to re-bundle following the instructions at http://www.sun.com/third-party/global/amazon/Sun_AmazonEC2_GettingStartedGuide.pdf to create an AMI without the X-Server packages. We may down the line release a Just enough Operating System, for the OpenSolaris 2008.11 AMI, but that decision is not final yet.
